TORONTO -- Really? Again?

What has gotten into these Seattle Seahawks? In the past two games, they have turned into a cocktail of the 1972 Miami Dolphins, the 1985 Chicago Bears and the Bill Walsh-era 49ers. On Sunday, before 40,770 at the sterile Rogers Centre, they beat another NFL team (the Buffalo Bills haven't been banished yet, have they?) by a bazillion points and left everyone to make sense of their dominance. Again.

The Seahawks couldn't explain it adequately because that would require extreme arrogance.

Think about it: How can a team sum up a 50-17 thrashing one week after a 58-0 demolition?

It is hard enough to beat a team by double digits, let alone drop 50 points in back-to-back weeks. The Seahawks are only the third team in league history to reach five-oh in consecutive games, and they are the first to do so since 1950.

This is nearly a once-in-a-lifetime display. This is not the feat of a team destined to sneak into the playoffs and then stumble. There is something about the Seahawks -- something incredible, something wondrous -- that 108 points in two games is magnifying.

No, victories over Arizona and Buffalo (combined record of 10-18) won't transform a team into a contender. But the Seahawks (9-5), who host the NFC West-leading 49ers on Sunday, haven't had trouble with the contenders this season. They have struggled to find the balance, the consistency and the focus to win the games they're supposed to win.

Are they as good as these two blowouts? No. But they are surging. They are fun to watch, and they are unrelenting.

Quarterback Russell Wilson is making a legitimate push for offensive rookie of the year. He looks as if he is a play ahead of defenses, and the Seahawks are tailoring the offense to his skill set.

He rushed for three touchdowns and threw for one in the first half Sunday. He finished the game with 205 passing yards and 92 rushing yards. Marshawn Lynch ran for 113 yards on just 10 carries, and the Seahawks gained 270 of their 466 yards on the ground.

Wilson is leading an offense that has averaged 43.7 points and 472.7 yards per game during this winning streak.

Too small of a sample size? In the past six games, the Seahawks are averaging 35 points and 413 yards per game. They also are allowing just 14.2 points per game, and they have a 5-1 record during that span.

Remember when we mocked them because they reached 20 points just once in their first five games? They have scored at least 20 points in eight of their past nine, including seven in a row.

"We're definitely clicking well," Wilson said.

The Seahawks were full of such understatements Sunday afternoon. It would be ill-received if they said, for instance, that the rest of the league is their drum and they're swinging the largest drum sticks in the history of music right now. That would go over about as well as coach Pete Carroll's absent-minded allowance of a fake punt with the Seahawks ahead 47-17.

Carroll took the blame for the fake punt, saying he should have called it off and explaining it was an automatic fake designed for a specific formation.

Pardon me as I suspend debate over that decision to reiterate an astounding notion: The Seahawks, who have played nine down-to-the-wire games, are now being accused of showing no mercy. Wild. Weird. Wonderful.

"That's tough to do," Wilson said of the consecutive blowouts.

"That's crazy," defensive end Bruce Irvin said.

That's Seahawks football, for now. And that's the most random yet revealing occurrence in a season morphing into something special.
